We had a wonderful two-night stay. Leaia and Mark have worked so hard in these 3 years to restore this landmark hotel and continue to pour lots of creative energies into it. The breakfasts were marvelous and they accommodated our time to eat preferences. You can see the Katy Trail right from the Globe. We stayed the night, then drove to the New Franklin Trailhead, parked & biked to the Globe for a 2nd night and then biked to Portland where Marvin Cotten with Cbamshuttle shuttled us back to pick up our car. Made for reasonable 40mile days for us. Leaia overcharged us but caught her error and sent us a $20 refund check - such honesty! Can't go wrong with this B&B:)

Perfect location right off the trail. Very comfortable and charming home. We loved the breakfast. Made to order omelets were perfect along with the sides-it was a good start to another day on the trail. We will be back next year for sure!

Another late night arrival in my trek across the KATY. I called ahead by a couple of hours and Leah and Mark, were accommodating. That glass of lemonade tasted really good :) Breakfast was great and they provided recommendations for places to stay when I got to St. Charles (my next night). Very friendly and welcoming, would stay with them again.

A special thank you to Leah and Mark for sheltering me when storms "reorganized" and cut my ride short. Hartsburg was my turn-around spot for my morning ride but it started to thunder as I pulled into the trailhead. I thought I would wait it out in the café but it was closed so I was just going to sit under their awning but Leah called to me from her front porch and invited me in. Thank you for a safe/dry place to wait for my husband to pick me up.

We loved our stay at this bed and breakfast! Mark and Leaia were really great hosts and made us feel at home. The house is quite lovely with plenty of space. The five of us enjoyed our stay immensely and were very comfortable. It's nearness to the trail is fabulous. But the BEST part of the stay was the breakfast they served us. It was really good and we all enjoyed it very much. We would love to stay here again!

Leaia and Mark were great hosts at their Globe Hotel Bed & Breakfast. We got there early on the Sunday that Pumpkin Fest was going on in the town. They were very accommodating allowing us to drop off our bikes/panniers early so we can wander the town to enjoy the festival going on. We had a nice leisurely night talking to them and the other guests. A good breakfast was served in the morning to get us on the trail again.

Our first ever trip to ride on the Katy Trail and we just booked our stays based on where we wanted to ride. We really lucked out selecting this place to stay for the night. Leaia and Mark are great hosts and their place is really great spot to relax and rest up for the next day's ride. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

After two nights of camping, my friend Chug and I were delighted to arrive at the Globe Hotel B&B and find they had a room for us. Leaia and Mark welcomed us and we felt like we had found an oasis. The outdoor shower was lovely, dinner at Dottie's Cafe was delicious, our real beds with AC were heavenly, and breakfast was yummy. I wanted to stay, but we still had miles to go on our way from Clinton to St. Charles.

Two words come to my mind when I remember the folks at the Globe Hotel Bed and Breakfast, hope and compassion. It was raining when I knocked on their door just before dinner, tired and wet. And, I prayed that they would let me in. They were gracious enough to do so. Let me have dinner with them and the other guests. Fortunately one of my favorites, beef stew, was on the menu. Mmmmm... . And, in the morning a breakfast fit for a king. Shortly after I was on my way. With renewed hope, and a life lesson in kindness and compassion.

BikerBoy from Maryville, IL on 09/25/2017 07:14 PM:
I would add a 3rd word: history. It's a privilege to stay in such an historic place. Mark and Leaia did an incredible job of restoring the Globe to its former glory, yet still giving us cyclists the modern conveniences.

A great little place with a wonderful breakfast. There are 3 shared bathrooms for all but they are clean and well kept. Plus they will store your bikes in the back yard so everything is safe.

We rode the trail June 2017. The hosts were fantastic - serving fruit and warm cookies when we arrived and then a wonderful dinner and breakfast. Our room was enchanting and cool (loved the ceiling fan!) after a long ride. A great local tavern with friendly locals too! We would highly recommend.

My sister and I just stayed at the Globe Hotel, it was great. We came in after riding 16 miles in the rain and they gave a warm welcome even though we were covered with sand and soaking wet. It is right off the trail, the rooms are comfortable and quite. They provided dinner in addition to breakfast and the food was amazing. Super nice people.

BikerBoy from Maryville, IL on 07/10/2017 02:55 PM:
I stayed at the Globe last week and it is remarkable to see the updates that Leaia and Mark have done in the last year. I gotta believe that the hotel is in better condition now than it was 100 years ago. Yet they preserve as much as they can, like the original window glass.

They continue to set the bar higher for B&B hospitality, food and conversation.

A friend and I stayed at the Globe Hotel and B&B in mid May. We were tired, wet and windblown riding through very nasty weather. Mark and Leaia were great! We were too late to eat at the diner. Not to worry They had gotten the last of the fried chicken before the diner closed and added some fresh cooking of there own to make us feel right at home.

They went out of our way to accommodate our every need! We were incredibly dirty, no problem! Come on in. We needed help with some minor bike repair. No problem. Here are all the tools and supplies you need.

This is what great service is all about. We will definitely be back!

Todd and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Globe Hotel Bed and Breakfast. Mark and Leaia were awesome! The food was fantastic. The accommodation very comfortable and cozy. We would definitely visit again and recommend the Globe to others! Thank you, Leaia and Mark for your warm, wonderful hospitality! TnT

Kerry Ames from Rome, WI on 06/02/2017 09:08 AM:
Amen to that! Actually many Amens. The morning fare was exceptional - worthy itself for making this your choice of B&B. Never a yogurt parfait fan, I have been turned by Leaia's concoction. I now try to emulate the same parfait but fall woefully short. Nonetheless, Leaia's creation has generated a new breakfast routine for me. I am not going to even try and compete with Mark's omelettes. Want to see a magic trick? Watch your willpower disappear when the first one is presented. Great company, great library, great stay, great hosts. We'll definitely be back.

Excellent hospitality. A group of us recently stayed at the Globe and couldn't have asked for better service. Mark and Leaia were amazing hosts and the food was wonderful. You haven't had an omelet until you've had Mark's. Perfect location in the middle of the state just a few hundred feet from the trail. When making your way across Missouri via The Katy Trail, the Globe Hotel Bed and Breakfast is a must!

We recently stayed at Globe Hotel B&B on our first trip to the Katy Trail. We planned an out and back two day trip from Boonville. Mark and Leaia were excellent hosts and all the comments associated with this B&B were spot on. Great accommodations, food was excellent, locals very friendly, and the scenery on the trail was fantastic. Great experience.

James Eychaner from Olympia, WA on 10/31/2016 11:25 AM:
Agree this is a wonderful place to stay. We camped in the back yard with full access to showers, meals, and so on. Highly recommend.

Mark and Leaia let us camp in the backyard and it was great. They are very nice and great host. Well worth the money, and the breakfast was amazing too. For sure I would stay again.

We stayed with Mark and Leaia by camping in the back yard. It was probably our best night on the Katy Trail. Mark and Leaia were terrific and their facility was excellent. Make sure if you stay there to have dinner. The food was great. We had a fun evening visiting with the other guests. This B&B is definitely a must when doing the Katy Trail.

Harlene from Tijeras, NM on 09/22/2016 07:00 AM:
We got in late, wet and dirty, exhausted and hungry after a day of riding in the rain and two flat tires! Leaia and Mark were very warm and gracious. The house is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had asked them to cook dinner for us, and they waited until we got there and ate with us. The dinner and breakfast were both very good. We were even able to do a load of laundry.

Leaia and Mark made our short stay so welcoming. They are super kind, and know a lot about the history of the Globe B&B, and also about the town of Hartsburg. Coming from CO and NY, it was a pleasure to speak with them and hear more about what they are doing to preserve and run this lovely establishment. Comfortable, quiet, cultural stay which was just what we were seeking while there for our short visit. We certainly have a reason to come back to Hartsburg, apart from the the delicious breakfast we consumed, and look forward to it!

I'm planning a trip for last week in sept and 1st week in oct. i am hoping to use Hartsburg as my starting point and ride for a week to Clinton and back and then to Machines and back. I would like to stay at the Globe Hotel my first day and when I get back from Clinton and Machens. Does anyone know if the Globe would allow me to leave my car parked there for the time I'm on the trail. I would be willing to pay a fee for that service as well as staying there when I'm in Hartsburg.....greatful for any suggestions. Thank-you, Dan Dudley, Knightstown indiana.....
P.S. I am traveling solo of the entire timeline......

We stayed at the Globe this week while riding the Katy in the extreme heat. The Globe was a welcome sight, and Leaia had cold, fresh lemonade in our hands within 5 minutes of arriving. Leaia and Mark are doing a great job of updating this 120+ year-old railroad hotel while maintaining as much historic charm as possible (e.g. 10" baseboards and wood floors and casings). Because of the heat, we wanted to get an early start and they accommodated us with a very early breakfast that was outstanding. We will certainly be staying here next time through!

This is a great B&B on the trail. I rode from Clinton to Hartsburg and got in late - after 8 pm. The local bar was the only place to eat frozen pizza (local restaurant is closed on Mondays). Without asking Lea made up a plate of spagetti that tasted sooo good. The next morning I was leaving early - like 5:30 AM. Mark got up and made me some eggs. Very nice couple - wish I had more time to spend there. Thanks!

On June 23 we had the pleasure of staying at the Globe B&B and we were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and accommodations provided by Mark and Leiea at this quaint 1890s vintage hotel. The B&B is a stone's throw from the Katy Trail and next door to a charming wonderful restaurant called the The Grand. We highly recommend this B&B for its comfort and warm personal charm provided by the owners!!!
